Japanese street wear brands?
I'm having trouble finding any good ones.
Web stores and Ebay Pages welcomed.
This is just jap brands, hardly streetstyle. Look at trove thats nowhere near the aesthetic
Visvim is also arguably americana
I've always associated with lad as being more punk rock but i guess that fits in.
Goes more into rick's aesthetics and the like, altho take my word with a grain of salt. Most brands are clumped together in rakuten and y!jp in terms of similarity so thats how I've been looking at it.
Like carpe diem and all the labels that broke out off it.
Facetasm for example also reminds me a bit of raf with the colorful prints and some unique pieces, which also fits into streetstyle but they also do oversized comfy cardigan jackets in light grey
Trove is "mori boy" / comfy but also geared more towards outdoorsy
DBSS is far as fuck from Rick
Also stop using the term aesthetics like that
Is this fucking 2006? Do you watch project runway?
Tons of buzzwords and baseless assumptions, your post is shit
Just my take on it, I did say take it with a grain of salt. First thing when i think of dbss is the shoes which imo has some similarities to geos but fair to say thats where most of it ends.
Also i'm interested in what UC goes for or is this categorization of brands pretty pointless?
it's not pointless ur mum is pointless
uc started from the streets but has been in Paris 10+ years strong it is far from streetwear it is a legitimate designer label
just because it has streetwear and urban influences it doesn't define the entire brand
streetwear is supreme c.e etc
uc is not streetwear
no u dumb dumb streetwear and street style are two completely different things and aren't even the same type of words, they are not interchangeable
streetwear is the style of urban clothing that came to be during the late 20th century and early 21st century with street culture influences like hip hop, milsurp and other subcultures
street style = what people wear on the streets, it could literally be any style of clothes, street style doesn't mean a certain style of clothing it means what people choose to wear outside their own home in urban environments
Depends on what you're looking for really...
-Original Fake (now discontinued but still easy to find)
-Pretty much all Japanese denim brands (sugarcane, kapital, flat head, momotaro, etc.)
-Bounty x Hunter
-Fingercroxx (Chinese, but worth the mention)
More 'high fashion' based:
-Cav Empt (maybe?)
-Number (N)ine (maybe?)
-Clot (might be Chinese)
Sites to check out:
-cliffedge.co.jp (good luck over paying)
-zozo.jp (gonna need a proxy)
I think that's a decent start, let me know if there's anything more specific you're looking for.
dbss is nothing like rick. dbss is another one of these fairly trash "punk influenced" japanese labels (see undercover).
They happen to have put out a few nice sneakers which are unmlike most of their other clothes.
the influence of streetwear on UC is really really strong. Heaps of shitty standard garms with shit painted/transferred/printed on.
